I thought it was normal. I thought everyone else could hear the same stuff I do. The loud click every time I swallow and the constant ringing in the ears. It's like I've been to a Motorhead concert every night and it's worse when it's really quiet, if you get my meaning. Unlike everyone else, reading a book in the still of the day for me is deafening!
And now two of my kids are complaining about it. I have been advised to take them to Ear, Nose and Throat (which is obviously a hospital department here and not the name of a trendy brasserie), but really - everyone knows there's no cure for it. I actually bought some homeopathic ear drops, but then saw the warning on the side against using it before speaking to a doctor. Obviously I"m not going to pour anything into my ear that comes with a warning.
Apparently it runs in families, and so far I know one cousin who has it too. My mother doesn't have ringing in her ears but she hears a whoosh in her head with every heart beat. That might be even more annoying that the ringing and the clicking, but at least it keeps you up to date on your mortality!
Anyone else get anything like this? More importantly, anyone know of a cure?
